He had lap band surgery back in the day. Over the summer, I thought he looked a little thinner in the face, but in that Rose Garden photo, he looks like his normal weight.

Well, that's what happens when you ignore science and the very loud warnings from medical professionals and take no measures to protect yourself. This virus has been circulating for months, and there have been plenty of others throughout history. We all ought to know how they spread by now, for the most part. It takes a special combination of hubris and stupidity to gather in groups without masks or distancing, over and over again, and expect NOT to be infected. And Repugs are the poster children for both of those qualities. The chickens are simply coming home to roost.

Not suspicious at all. Trump was feeling sick way before the debate, knew Hicks was already poz.

But he ignored all guidelines, didn't wear a mask, and breathed on everyone with his gamey breath.

It's the farthest thing from suspicious. They were all together at the events for the SC nominee last Saturday, without masks in indoor places. All but Sen. Johnson, who probably got from Trump or somebody a few days later. Completely predictable; the wonder is that it didn't happen to a big group of Republicans sooner.

This should come as no surprise but it appears Trump knew he was positive 36 hours BEFORE he announced it. Per NBC:

Dr. Sean Conley raised some significant questions as to when Trump was diagnosed with the coronavirus. "He's 72 hours into his diagnosis now," Conley said Saturday morning. However, it has only been 36 hours since Trump notified the public that he had tested positive. According to Conley's timeline, Trump would have been diagnosed sometime Wednesday.

At this point, every politician in DC should be tested.

The WH has "clarified" Conley's statement, R47. Per WSJ's Rebecca Ballhaus:

A White House official clarifies Dr. Conley’s timeline. He says Conley meant to say it’s Day 3, not 72 hours in—the diagnosis was made Thursday night—and that Garibaldi meant to say it’s been two days, not 48 hours, since the Regeneron was administered on Thursday night.

Likewise at the debate there was an "honors system" rule about tests: you SAY you got a negative one, they let you in. You're related to the president, they waive the mask rule.

This is the fundamental problem with contemporary Republicanism: the well-connected don't obey the rules. Laws and the Constitution don't matter, let alone the petty health regulations at a gathering. They're all optional. It leads to death.

Trump conveniently arrived at the debate with his entourage too late to be tested, so they went on the " honor" system with people that have no honor. Then the fuckers decided that rules don't apply to them and took off their masks and refused to wear them. Does anyone think that regular testing went on at the WH, considering what the fat fuck said about not testing?

Christie advocated in the Washington Post for opening the country county by county, based on data,, which is basically what has been happening in the mid-Atlantic region. He criticized states that opened too quickly. He said there was risk to re-opening the country, but there was risk if the country didn't open. Christie, in fact, took that risk that he was advocating - and now he's facing the consequences. He always advocated for proper safety measures during re-opening - so that's where Christie failed to walk the talk.

He's no longer on the government payroll but I wonder if he has some sort of 'retirement' medical insurance. You know, the kind that most of us don't have, and those of us that do had to work 20 years to qualify for.

Who knows, maybe he has Obamacare. Let's be honest, you can't check yourself into the hospital is if it was the Marriott. He had to have his doctor call and get him admitted, which, if you have a regular doctor, isn't all that hard to do, especially if you're a former governor, 58 years old, asthma sufferer, morbidly obese, and just tested positive for a deadly virus. All he had to do was tell the doctor he was short of breath. Hell. CC probably experiences shortness of breath when he reaches for the remote control.

Christie and the medical center aren't commenting on his admission, but a news article explains what probably happened to get him admitted. The article says you don't check in like a hotel, but your doctor can get you in as a direct admission, so you can skip the ER. Christie had at least three risk factors, and people with underlying lung disease can turn very bad very fast.

BTW, we don't know what kind of insurance he has, but he's presumably a millionaire at this point, so he probably has the best plan available. Also, nobody has mentioned - he's a registered lobbyist and he lobbied on behalf of several NJ hospital systems in the past year. I don't know if this medical center is one of them, but I would assume that he's a favorite of hospital administrators.

by Anonymousreply 22310/10/2020

When someone whose lungs have been ravaged by Covid-19 is struggling to get enough oxygen into their blood, ICU staff can choose from various interventions to try to help them. One technique is high-flow oxygen therapy, which involves blowing oxygen up a patient’s nose via tubes. Another option is to use a CPAP machine, which provides oxygen via a tight-fitting face mask. These are relatively noninvasive methods — but early in the pandemic, many ICU physicians avoided using them because they feared they could help spread the virus around hospital rooms, potentially infecting staff.

Nuala Meyer, MD, professor of medicine at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, recalls that in the first few weeks of the pandemic, she and colleagues more commonly opted for ventilator systems instead. Although air flow can be carefully controlled with these devices, ventilators are more invasive. They require putting patients into chemically induced comas and inserting tubes deep into their airway. This can cause complications, and it may be harder for patients to recover once they are taken off such systems.

As the pandemic unfolded, it became clear that appropriate PPE actually did do a sufficient job of protecting health care workers from the aerosolizing effects of less invasive therapies. It was one reason why ventilators were used less over time.

“One of the more dramatic changes is being less worried about that spread,” Meyer says. That had benefits for patients, too: “If you can avoid the ventilator, you avoid sedatives, and maybe there is a benefit there,” she adds.

It’s a balancing act, though, Morgan says, because it can also be detrimental to keep a patient on less invasive methods should they prove ineffective. The patient only becomes more exhausted, and switching to the ventilator at that point can be even more of an ordeal for them.

Overall, though, the consensus among ICU staff seems to be that being able to opt for CPAP or high-flow oxygen therapies is a good thing. In time, clinical studies may prove that this has had an impact on mortality.

Those drugs are pretty powerful, I just notice Remdesivir is made by Gilead, the same company that makes HIV drugs. They are basically using the same concept they learned from that to kill the virus. Actually in this case, keep it from multiplying further in you body in the hope that your immune system has time can overtake it.

That's why they keep saying if your immune compromised, this virus is a lot more dangerous. I am sure Christy's immune system has been compromised for a long time with his weight and other stuff he has going on.

In an interview with The New York Times and in a written statement, Mr. Christie said that he had believed he was in a “safe zone” at the White House while he was there. He urged people to follow best practices, like mask wearing and social distancing, but argued there’s a middle ground between extensive, large-scale shutdowns and reopening cities and states without taking proper precautions.

Mr. Christie said he had spent days in the intensive care unit of the Morristown Medical Center in New Jersey, after taking himself there on Oct. 3 at the insistence of his doctor. Mr. Christie, who was at high risk for negative effects of the coronavirus because of his weight and because he is an asthmatic, was one of several people around Mr. Trump, who announced early on Oct. 2 that he had tested positive, to contract the virus.

Mr. Christie had led Mr. Trump’s debate preparation sessions, and attended the Sept. 26 event honoring Ms. Barrett, the president’s nominee for the Supreme Court, in the Rose Garden. White House officials are looking at that event as a cause of the spread of the virus to more than a dozen people. “I believed when I entered the White House grounds, that I had entered a safe zone, due to the testing that I and many others underwent every day,” Mr. Christie said in the statement. “I was wrong. I was wrong not to wear a mask at the Amy Coney Barrett announcement and I was wrong not to wear a mask at my multiple debate prep sessions with the president and the rest of the team.”

“I hope that my experience shows my fellow citizens that you should follow C.D.C. guidelines in public no matter where you are and wear a mask to protect yourself and others,” he said.
